A new semester started today!
I put my notebooks and pen case in my new school bag...and I didn’t forget my lunch.
When I kissed my mom and dad goodbye and opened the front door, Anna and Abby were waiting for me.
They both said, “Good morning, Olivia!” in loud, cheery voices.
I said, “Good morning!” back just as loud.
They laughed and said, “You have so much energy in the morning.”
Anna and Abby noticed my new school bag right away and said it’s super cute!
Anna had new shoes and Abby was wearing new earrings.
Starting a new semester makes you want to wear new things, doesn’t it?
Of course, both of them looked so good!
I found a huge flower bed on my way to school and took a picture of the tulips blooming there.
Shirley loves flowers, so I’ll show her my pictures later.
Just as we were about to enter the school, we heard people yelling and saw two people running around like rabbits...It was Lily and Emma!
I was surprised that they were rushing so early in the new semester!
Lily looked at me and said, “Listen! Emma said she wanted to go to the sandwich shop this morning!
There was a long line, but she said she absolutely wanted to eat their sandwiches!
Thanks to her, we had to run to school and now my hair’s a mess!”
Having to line up at that store first thing in the morning is definitely not fun!
But Lily would never leave Emma behind and go to school on her own.
Emma didn’t seem bothered and just said, “I got enough for everyone!”…
At lunch, we all sat around a table and ate our lunches and the sandwiches Emma bought.
They were so good that we could see why Emma was so determined to buy them...but…
Since I also brought a lunch to eat, I was so full that I got sleepy and can barely remember my afternoon classes.
Oh, right! When I went to show Shirley the photos of the tulips I took this morning, she said, “I have something I want to show you!” and pulled out pictures of tulips in the same garden before I could.
We laughed so much because we had thought of the same thing and ended up exchanging our photos.
I need to print them out and put them in my scrapbook...This semester seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun!
